A fun, quick distraction dark, yet funny debut novel. Oh, another story about a woman in love with a man who doesn t love her back I know, sounds overdone and cheesy and a tad bit boring However, with Purcell s unique writing style and knack for details, this was one of the best books I have read in a long while.We meet Tyler, an intelligent and introspective unemployed list maker who just recently left her entire life behind to move in with a man she had fallen in love with over the internet As it turns out, however, David is not who she expect Oh, another story about a woman in love with a man who doesn t love her back I know, sounds overdone and cheesy and a tad bit boring However, with Purcell s unique writing style and knack for details, this was one of the best books I have read in a long while.We meet Tyler, an intelligent and introspective unemployed list maker who just recently left her entire life behind to move in with a man she had fallen in love with over the internet As it turns out, however, David is not who she expected him to be and she was left to make a decision try to eek it out and make a life with David or cut her losses and move on.A fast faced novel, often amusing, often sad we are pulled into Tyler s sudden cross country expedition to find herself, to cross off things on a list she wrote many years before a list of things to do before she dies Along the way she learns a lesson about smoking, how affectionate armadillos can be a
From wrongly quoting the Saved By the Bell episode in which Jessie Spano od s on caffeine pills to the protagonist s total love of Coldplay to her complete lack of any kind of significant personal insight to the the inexplicable turnaround at the end this book just doesn t work It reads like a melodramatic college girl s journal Not a precocious college student, just that boring, self destructive girl down the hall who thought she was the first person to endure personal struggles I think the Fro

Chic book Loved it I remember this from it, even though I read it years ago, I was waiting for something to happen, but it didn t The author fills the book with relatable quotes like that that make you want to change your situation only if its bad or going nowhere of course. For a chick book , I found myself identifying easily with Tyler and evenhorrifyingly with David I knew the blackness in Tyler that threatened to consume her and as soon as I put this book down, I knew that I wanted to make a movie based on it One day, I hope to get the chance. I read it years ago and loved it I read it again about 4 years and many experiences later and related to it but didn t like it as much any Probably because it brought back horrible memories, and because it was cheesy at times.
